A very apt title

Disquiet is a haunting little novella. With only a little over a hundred pages, Leigh sets a very distinct mood of distantness between family members in a huge house. I found the read to be rather like a unsettling Ian McEwan tale. The characters include a beaten wife escaped from her abusive husband, her children, her very frosty mother, and a brother & sister in law dealing with a huge loss. Perfect for a moody overcast afternoon to curl up and immerse yourself in.
